      Sheridan is a professor (and psychiatrist) at a small private college in Cold Creek. Her best friend is a fellow professor (the two of them are two of three psychiatrists that work for the college) and her boyfriend is a state trooper. The story follows their lives after a body is found in the arboretum in the school. She doesn't believe that Clive is the murderer and, with the help of her friends, tries to figure out what actually did happen.I have not read the first book in the series, but thi [...]

      They just keep getting betterI chose the full five star rating because this book really shows off the author's talent for developing not only her characters but her plotting as well. Definitely not sorry I included this adventure in my weekend's reading!

    • Rhonda says:

      4 stars Dr. Sheridan Hendley and friends are back for the second book in the Cold Creek series. I enjoy this set of mysteries. I like that Sheridan did not find the body. So many stories all have the main character find it time after time. I like all the characters relationships with each other. We got to see another side of Max which was nice. another death occurred on Cold Creek campus in the Arboretum. The police send for Sheridan and Kim to help calm things down. Police Chief Barney Pfeiffe [...]

      A body is found in the Arboretum of Cold Creek College and Faculty Sleuth Dr Sheridan Hendley swings into action. The victim died of bullet wounds to the head and the local police charge a college gardener with murder. Sheridan is horrified. The evidence is circumstantial and the accused man is not the sort who goes around killing people. To make matters worse, this is the second murder the college has experienced in recent years. Its reputation as a safe place for respectable, middle-class Amer [...]

      Dr. Sheridan Hendley is a psychologist that teaches at Cold Creek, a small private college. She is also on the team that helped design the crisis plan for campus emergencies. This is why she is summoned to the scene where a dead body is found. Her main concern was to help the upset folks that discovered the body. But I was very surprised that none of the characters asked “Who is dead?” A shirt sleeve is mentioned, but they don’t even convey if the body is male or female. Usually ‘who’ [...]

As one of the psychology professors at the small college, she is called upon to deal with the emotional reactions of those involved and to be available to the student body as well.

      In this second book in the Cold Creek series, there has been another murder on campus, but the chief of police is more concerned with naming a murderer than solving the crime. As psychology professor Sheridan Hendley discovers information that proves the wrong person is behind bars, it becomes clear that there are people who want to keep Sheridan quiet -- no matter what it takes. With a familiar cast of returning characters and some new ones as well, Sheridan unwittingly finds herself at the cen [...]

    • Kay (Brigidsmomma) Compton says:

      I enjoyed this one. The second in a series that I started as a BR on the Challenge Factory, this one was fun to read if just to see how the characters from the first book fared in the second. There were not so many surprises in that regard; the boring and clueless dentist, Wayne, who wants a romantic attachment to the protagonist is still clueless, even though she has been dating her new guy for OVER 6 MONTHS now!!!! The crime is about a guy who shows up dead on campus with supposedly no connect [...]

    • Maureen says:

      The second book in the Cold Creek College series does not disappoint. If you liked Sheridan and her friends and coworkers in Murder at Cold Creek College, you're in for a treat. Her main character continues to develop; she is still addicted to coffee, and still dodging Wayne the would-be suitor. Her relationship with Brett, the hunky detective, is moving forward. Will she soon have to meet his daughter, Madison? Sheridan's mother and sister weigh in on her love life from time to time-just enough [...]

      This is the second book in the Cold Creek series in this book a body is found dead and Sheridan is called over to help people who are suffering from shock and her boyfriend Brett is called in to investigate the crime. It's not long before the reader finds out murder is going on at the college. Who had the most to gain from this murder? Will Sheridan and Brett figure it out before the murderer strikes again?This is a great mystery that kept me guessing as to who the murderer was and I really enjo [...]

      Murder in the Arboretum is the second book in the Cold Creek series featuring college psychology professor Sheridan Hendley, and is just as enjoyable as the first book, Murder at Cold Creek College. Sheridan and her colleague Kim, after having solved the murder of a psychology professor, are now being drawn in to the mystery of a murdered young man found in the College's arboretum. Despite the fact that the murder victim was not a student at the College, the administration is very concerned abou [...]

    • Betty says:

      Although Murder in the Arboretum is part of a series, it does very well as a stand-alone. The author provides enough background information so that you are not at a loss about what's going on or curious about any of the characters. Sheridan Hendley is a professor and psychologist who teaches at a local college. Suddenly there's her friend and colleague, Kim, in her classroom with a tense expression on her face. A groundskeeper has discovered a dead body. The police are convinced Clive Johnson is [...]

    • Shannon Binegar-Foster says:

      I just love how the characters draw you in. I really enjoy the extra detail Christa puts into her books. She also makes sure to include plenty of humor. I found myself laughing out loud more than once at some of the thoughts that the characters had along the way. I even found myself liking Max, even though I couldn't stand him in the first book. I am glad we were shown another side of him. I just couldn't put this one down I was hooked from the first chapter. I can't wait for more books in this [...]

    • Linda says:

      I received an ARC of this book and quickly read through it. Although I had not read the first book in this series, it was easy to pick up on the main characters and their interactions with each other. It was a little disconcerting at first to adapt to the first person style, especially since it was very detailed in every day actions and tasks, but overall I enjoyed the story and while I thought I had the murderer pegged once or twice, there was enough of a mystery and twist to keep me guessing t [...]

    • PelicanFreak says:

      The drama starts up almost immediately and the characters stay true to form from ‘Murder at Cold Creek’. While you can easily come into this book without having read its predecessor, it flows beautifully and I’d recommend reading this series in order. After reading Cold Creek you’ll come to expect certain behavior from the characters here - I love the small town life and the characters are painted so perfectly that I feel I know them. Trouble ensues and we are treated to drama & myst [...]

    • Christine says:

      I really enjoyed this second book and the return of Sheridan and Brett! They make a great team and bring out the best of others around them, especially Max! I like the books pace and the way the mystery unfolds. I did not go to college, so I am enjoying this behind the scenes look at campus life at the college. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    • Patricia Gligor says:

      Although "Murder in the Arboretum" is the second book in the Cold Creek mystery series by Christa Nardi, it was the first for me. Normally, I try to read a series from the beginning but, this time, it didn't work out that way. So, naturally, I was concerned that I'd be "out of the loop," not having read the first book. Happily, that was not the case. The author gave enough background information in this book to satisfy me and to draw me into the story and into the lives of her characters.

    • Georgia says:

      I loved that I could read this book without having to read the first, and still pick up all the characters and everything really easily. There is a lot of telling rather than showing, which kind of irritated me, but not enough to take away from the overall story. A solid plot development and well rounded characters - so that you could recognise them by their traits rather than by name - helped make the story an easy to read, enjoyable escape for a couple of hours.

    • C. Salem says:

      I liked this book a lot. It was nice to see Sheridan back in this second book set in a small college town. This book has some of the same characters as the first one, but you could easily read them out of order. Sheridan is a college professor who wants to make sure that the police chief doesn't cut corners and arrest the wrong man. The story took a few twists and turns leaving me unsure who the culprit was until almost very end. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

    • Jeanie Jackson says:

      I am not sure what it is about this series, but I love it. I call it gently paced because it doesn't feel slow but it really doesn't move fast. I enjoy the day to day bits that fill the the story and I like watching the development of the characters within the book and between the first and second book. I was glad to see that the romance had advanced even though we don't see much of it, after all, this is a cozy mystery and that suits me just fine.

    • Jenny Lambert says:

      .Murder on a college campus ????Murder comes close to home in a small town. Interesting who done it. A young man is murdered and authorities are trying to find out who was responsible. Even though this is book 2 it is a story of its own. I enjoyed this book and it's was neat to see who the killer was as the story unfolded. The author is very good at describing people and places, and it makes this book enjoyable.

    • Melody says:

      I really like this book. Sheridan is back for a second book that is set in a small college town. Although, it is the second in the series it is an easily read stand alone or can be read out of order. The twists and turns keep you guessing as to who the murderer is. The characters are well written and the book keeps you turning pages. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Nardi.

    • Mary says:

      Just the right elements for a cozy mysteryI liked this second book in the series as much as I liked the first book. Lots of mysterious things happening and plenty of suspense. There were areas near the end that were confusing but it all became clear in the final pages. I look forward to reading the next in the series.
